Copiague Community Cares is excited to be a part of the Town of Babylon Cares Project:

Our collective organizations, civic groups, government representatives, and not for profits have made significant progress in improving our community’s health and wellness, but there’s always more to do. 

We’re here to kick off the new year with an excellent prevention intention! As the saying goes, “Prevention is better than the cure.” Let’s arm ourselves with the knowledge, skills, and resources we need to create an environment where making healthy choices is as easy as possible. 

The Town of Babylon Cares Project aims to bring us together to make prevention a part of our culture and create a more protective environment for all. Don’t miss our special guest speakers and an opportunity to incorporate the prevention message in all that we do. 

Everyone is invited!… Bring your friends, families, neighbors, and colleagues! We’re all in this together.


Copiague Community Cares (CCC) is a community coalition comprised of parents, teachers, law enforcement, businesses, religious leaders, health providers and other community activists working together to make the Copiague community safer, healthier and drug-free.

This Community Coalition is a not-for-profit organization founded by Sharon Fattoruso, Dagmar Marino and Lori Prisco.

We are working with the Suffolk County Prevention Resource Center who is committed to facilitating partnerships among schools, communities and prevention providers to focus on the provision of effective strategies to deal with alcohol, drug, and tobacco abuse and problem gambling.

The PRC functions as a centralized clearinghouse of resources for youth, parents, professionals, treatment providers, educators, the media and the general public. They provide this education through a comprehensive continuum of resources, training’s, and community-related services.
